1/2 cup vegetable oil
6 (8-inch) flour tortillas
1 cup sour cream
3/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1/2 teaspoon dry fajita seasoning
2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken
4 cups (16 ounces) shredded Colby-Jack cheese blend
6 scallions (green onions), chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat (or to 375 degrees F. in an electric skillet). Fry tortillas one at a time for 10 to 15 seconds, or until golden. Drain well on paper towels.
In a medium bowl, combine sour cream, hot sauce, and fajita seasoning; mix well.
Place 1 tortilla on prepared baking sheet then spread 1 tablespoon sour cream mixture over the top. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup shredded chicken, 3/4 cup cheese, and 1 chopped scallion. Place a tortilla on top and repeat layers 4 more times, ending with a plain tortilla on top. Reserve remaining sour cream mixture.
Brush tops and sides of tortillas with melted butter then cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake 25 minutes. Remove foil and place on a serving plate. Spread top tortilla with remaining sour cream mixture and top with remaining chopped scallion.
Cut into wedges and serve immediately.
-I did not use melted butter.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Cook the chicken. I boiled it for about 20 minutes.
Drain on a paper towel and then lay on a greased baking sheet.
Sprinkle the cheese.
Sprinkle scallions or green onions.
Add another layer of tortillas and the extra cheese, chicken and sour cream.
Cut in to pieces.
Here's what you'll end up with:
I used whole wheat tortillas and I admit that they probably didn't "fry" or crisp up as much as white flour tortillas. I was actually a little afraid that they would be soggy but they tasted great! They were crunchy but weren't soft and soggy, either, as a lot of these tortillas/baking dishes can be.
The sour cream/fajita/hot sauce mixed with the cheese was perfect. They melted and melded together when put in the oven.
I would describe these as more of a quesadillas. The chicken had good flavor. We dipped it in sour cream and salsa.
I served this with Southwest Wild Rice.
Hope you enjoy!
